I listened to the second part of a teleseminar today. It was very interesting seminar.
To accomplish anything you have to believe three things:
1. You have to want it.
2. You have to believe you deserve it.
3. You have to believe you are destined for it.
I thought that was a very interesting philosophy. It could be applied to just about anything in life.
When it comes to mental illness, one’s self-confidence tends to become eroded over the years. One’s self-worth takes a dive.
Then comes recovery. It takes long hard work to recovery from mental illness. Part of the recovery involves developing a self-confidence and a self-worth.
I’ve talked before about listing positive characteristics and having them about the house. I talked about how this helped me so much in my self worth and self-confidence.
Then there are affirmations.
Those are positive statements you can make about yourself stating as if they are already happening. Stating the positive in a today mode.
Some examples of affirmations are:
I love being alive and being me!
I am ready to accept a hapy and satisying relationship.
I am having a great day.
You can find more examples of affirmations online. There are several books about positive self-talk. It takes work.
But it is worth it.
While I was listening to the teleseminar today, I decided that I did want my dream. I did deserve my dream. And I believed in my dream. So I am on the way. It will take a bit of time, but I know I will arrive.
